Efficient algorithms are known for computing a minimum spann.ing tree, or a shortest path. tree (with a fixed vertex as the root). The weight of a shortest path tree can be much more than the weight of a minimum spa,nning tree. Conversely, the distance bet,ween the root, and any vertex in a minimum spanning tree may be much more than the distance bet#ween(More)

We give a simple algorithm to find a spanning tree that simultaneously approximates a shortest-path tree and a minimum spanning tree. The algorithm provides a continuous tradeoff: given the two trees and aγ>0, the algorithm returns a spanning tree in which the distance between any vertex and the root of the shortest-path tree is at most 1+√2γ times the(More)

• We introduce a new technique called oblivious rounding a variant of randomized rounding that avoids the bottleneck of first solving the linear program. Avoiding this bottleneck yields more efficient algorithms and brings probabilistic methods to bear on a new class of problems. We give oblivious rounding algorithms that approximately solve general packing(More)

We use Fibonacci heaps to improve a parametric shortest path algorithm of Karp and Orlin, and we combine our algorithm and the method of Schneider and Schneider’s minimum-balance algorithm to obtain a faster minimum-balance algorithm. For a graph with n vertices and m edges, our parametric shortest path algorithm and our minimum-balance algorithm both run(More)
Abstract. Consider the following file caching problem: in response to a sequence of requests for files, where each file has a specified size and retrieval cost , maintain a cache of files of total size at most some specified k so as to minimize the total retrieval cost. Specifically, when a requested file is not in the cache, bring it into the cache and pay(More)

The minimum equivalent graph (MEG) problem is as follows: given a directed graph, find a smallest subset of the edges that maintains all teachability relations between nodes. This problem is NP-hard; this paper gives an approximation algorithm achieving a performance guarantee of about 1.64 in polynomial time. The algorithm achieves a performance guarantee(More)

Given an undirected graph with edge costs and a subset of k ≥ 3 nodes called terminals, a multiway, or k-way, cut is a subset of the edges whose removal disconnects each terminal from the others. The multiway cut problem is to find a minimum-cost multiway cut. This problem is Max-SNP hard. Recently Calinescu, Karloff, and Rabani (STOC’98) gave a novel(More)
